Who We Are
Alexandria Community Services Board offers day programs for adults, including placement in jobs, work crews, sheltered workshops, and pre-vocational programs.
Vocational programs provide meaningful work to persons with intellectual disabilities based upon their individual needs and preferences. Participants are offered to participate in one of several programs.
- The Sheltered Workshop provides supervised employment for persons requiring ongoing moderate support. Workers operate in groups of 10 or more completing projects such as labeling, envelope stuffing, and film recycling.
- Competitive Supportive Employment for Groups and Individuals- The program for groups of people provides employment for persons in need of long-term on-the-job training and support. Groups work in the community as subcontractors, or the group is hired by a business. Jobs performed include janitorial services, grounds keeping, and recycling services.
- The program for individuals provides job placement for persons in need of on-the-job support. Individuals work in the community alongside a job coach who supports them until they are comfortable working independently. Jobs include cashier, receptionist, and cook among others.
